Fluency

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

If I could, I would have stayed at home and watched the Justice Secretary being interviewed live on TV for the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, but I have my own interview to conduct so I had to hurry back to the office.  To say that she answered the questions of the Judicial and Bar Council panel very well would be an understatement. I marvel at her articulateness, her fluency, qualities I—as well as my applicants--regrettably lack.  Propelled by my love of words and language, I can’t help but admire people like the Justice Secretary who can verbalize their thoughts as coherent as she did.

Its an art! Even I stumble and fumble on so many occasions when talking about something important.
Wish you a wonderful week ahead Angeli:)

I envy people who can speak eloquently. I am fine when I write but when it comes to speaking - forget it!

by the way, alam mo ba yung newsroom (HBO original tv series)? baka magustuhan mo yun... :-)

@Eks: i can't say yet. sina sec de lima at dean pangalangan lang ang napakinggan kong magsalita. the jbc would not go for either of the two, i suppose. she has disbarment cases against her, and he is from the academe. ikaw, sino bet mo?

@Arti: you're right. it's an art. have a wonderful week, too, arti. ;)

@Loree: i would still prefer to be a good writer than a good speaker, though. :)

by the way din, Eks, I am a fan of The Newsroom, despite the negative reviews. gusto ko yung concept ng show. pati Political Animals, another new show, pinapanood ko.

yey! ganda ng The Newsroom no? every monday nga hanap kaagad ako ng torrent para mapanood ko e. hehehe. i even downloaded Rudy (a 1993 movie) kanina. ang ganda din! :-)

definitely not de lima. pero di ko pa din alam kung sino gusto ko sa kanila. :-)

hahanapin ko Political Animals. :-)

parehong pareho tayo ng inisip. i also downloaded Rudy pero hindi ko pa pinapanood. siyempre, naintriga ako kung bakit naiyak si will sa movie na yun. hahahha..
